The brutally cold weather and dangerous wind chills that have blanketed Minnesota have also impacted high school sports schedules for Tuesday.

It comes a day after Governor Mark Dayton ordered all public schools throughout the state to shut down due to the bitterly cold weather. Many districts in the Twin Cities, including Minneapolis, St. Paul, St. Louis Park and Hopkins remain closed with wind chills still hovering more than 20 below zero. Private schools such as Benilde St. Margaret's, Holy Angels and DeLaSalle have also remained shuttered.

School closings have also forced postponement of many high school sporting events. According to gopark.org, all St. Louiis Park athletic contests for Tuesday have been postponed. The list includes basketball games against Totno-Grace with the girls hosting the Eagles and the boys playing in Fridley and a boys hockey game against Mound-Westonka at Thaler Arena in Mound.

As for Benilde-St. Margaret's, it's "Game on!" The boys basketball team is hosting Irondale while the girls travel to New Brighton to face the Knights. The boys hockey team hosts St. Thomas Academy at The Rec Center and the girls hockey team heads to Hopkins to take on the Blake Bears.

One key girls hockey game is still on for Tuesday night as the top ranked team in Class AA, the Minnetonka Skippers take take on the third ranked Hopkins Royals at the Minnetonka Ice Arena at 7 PM.

So despite the weather postponements, there's still plenty of high school sports action for Tuesday night. The good news out of all this chill is it's going to get warmer this weekend.
